I have soloed my way to Illidan and I need some help with the fire elementals in P2, one of them always get enraged and I'm getting killed before I could kill both of them. Please help!
I popped Recklessness + Skull Banner + Avatar and burn them down before they can do real damage. Save Die by the sword, rallying cry and the other banners if your dps is a bit low.
Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?
Okey, those two fire elementals have to be tanked in the middle of the area. Just keep them both close to the glaives and nuke them asap. That's about it. You're probably forcing one of them to go to the other ones warglaive. Just tank and spank in the middle.
But as you said; tank them in the middle. All I did, went well. Nothing more to it than that.
In the future, don't jump to the guns that people are boasting and bragging about eveything they write. What I wrote was not written in a superior way, neither should it be taken as such.
This is simple when you know, I found out the hard way on my blood Dk (which just about managed to get them down) aswell as my ret pala (which wiped the first time) when i saw i was taking 40k melee dmg and 40k+ fire dmg, I KNEW something was wrong..........so basically when in P2 Illidan puts the warglaives down and the elementals spawn, just make sure you stand in the MIDDLE of them both...otherwise they will enrage.
After that it was a no contest.......
they enrage when they are too far away from their spawnpoints. you can tank it in the middle, that's fine, but you can also do it this way:
ele 1 will hit you in the back, but since it is fire damage, you cant dodge/block/parry it anyways (and you're dps after all). and they do more damage the further they are away from the spawnpoint anyways, so ele one will deal close to zero damage this way. just burn down ele 2 with CDs quickly, then kill ele one. it is also very easy that way.
you don't need the CDs anyways at any other stage in that fight, so you easily can use them there.
I specced into bladestorm and blew recklessness when they spawned. They went down with no issue.
I stood at one glaive, saved my major cds (reck, SB, etc.) and nuked one down as it spawned then HL back to the other glaive. The second mob never got far enough away to enrage. Just kill the first one before the second one gets to you basically.
